Excellent short articles in Wikipedia
About 0.1% of Wikipedia articles are featured articles, which have been thoroughly reviewed and designated as the very best of Wikipedia. However, an enormous number of Wikipedia articles are too short to realistically be featured, but nonetheless need to meet the same standards as the longer articles. Articles less than 15kb long which nonetheless meet the FA criteria, and would be suitable for release in a print or CD version of Wikipedia, are listed here. Currently, 422 articles are listed as excellent short articles.

The process for listing excellent short articles is simpler than that for featured articles. If you find or write an article meeting the criteria, you can add it to the nominations page for an impartial reviewer to assess and, if successful, add to this list. Articles are removed if promoted to featured status or delisted for not meeting the criteria: any editor can do this by following the delisting instructions. If an article's nomination fails or it is delisted, pointers should be given on its talk page on how to improve it to reach the criteria. Disagreements can be resolved on the disputes page. WikiProject Good articles helps to maintain the process.
